Smile Picture Updates

It's been a while since I shared some pics of my chins, so I figured I'd give an update It's really hard to get pics of the boys while they're out playing because they don't sit still! So unfortunately, I only have one pic of them and it's a cage shot But I have plenty of pics of the girl chin we have, Chilla.

The first pic is of the boys (in this order) Cadbury, Casper, and Punkin
The Second is of Chilla teasing the boys (as always!) while she was out playing.
The Third is of Chilla in what I would consider an uncomfy position, but she seems to always be comfy

Heres are more pics of lazy Chilla and how she uses her wheel now
And the last pic is how she looked for 2 days after we moved her wheel from its usual spot and hung it from the top of the cage (with supports of course!). She was a grumpy little chin those 2 days!

Adorable chinnies. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know many people who keep the sort of wheel in their cage that you have in your picture, it's been said they are dangerous. Have you ever had any problems with that kind? Logically I can understand the arguement against them but I guess you would be a good person to ask if you ever have chin wheel accidents with that sort of wheel. This can get to be a pretty heated issue and I don't intend it to be one, I am truly curious how often or if you have had issues with that kind of wheel. Or maybe it was a chin wheel urban legend.

I use flying saucers but mostly because that's all I know about and my chins like them and I've never had any accidents with them. I swear they like to poop on them and fling it across the room, having poop flinging contests and a flying saucer wheel, as a chin you can get your poop flung pretty far.

I've only had one accident with my chin wheel and it was when all 3 boys were trying to play in it at once. What happened was the one chinchilla stuck his head in while the other was trying to play (he wasnt going very fast only walking). He didn't get hurt but it was a very VERY scary situation for the chin and me! I think they learned to take turns now though and I watch them closely! My female chin has never had any problems with the wheel (knock on wood!) I've been looking into getting a flying saucer for my chins but I can only find them for $100 or more which can get expensive when I have to buy for 4 chins.
So in general I'd say that for one chin, the type of wheel I have is ok, but for more than one you should watch them closely to make sure one doesnt get hurt!

I think on chinworld they sell the saucers for 60 bucks. It's still not cheap but less than 100.

Thanks for sharing.
